MICHAEL ROSENBAUM DIRECTS SMALLVILLE

Michael Rosenbaum, who plays Lex Luthor on The CW's Smallville, makes his directing debut with Thursday night's episode, "Freak."

"Michael did an amazing job," Smallville executive producer Al Gough told The Continuum. "He is an incredibly gifted actor, and his talent translated to the other side of the camera. We couldn't be more pleased and proud."

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Clark (Tom Welling) and Chloe (Allison Mack) discover that Tobias (guest star Greyston Holt), a young man who was blinded in the meteor shower and now has the ability to identify 'meteor freaks,' is being used by Lex to locate people with abilities in order to experiment on them. Lana (Kristin Kreuk) finds out about Tobias' gift, and fearing he will name Clark as one infected, offers him a cornea transplant in exchange for his silence. However, she is not prepared for Tobias' shocking news."

The episode was written by Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer.

LEGION OF SUPER HEROES: "THE SUBSTITUTES"

"The Substitutes," a new episode of Legion of Super Heroes, will premiere on Kids' WB! this Saturday at 10 a.m. (ET).

Here's how the episode is described:

"It's that time of year again -- Legion Auditions! This year's crop is hardly promising, with most hopefuls turning out to be comic duds. But when the Legion is overwhelmed fighting a mysterious foe in Earth's upper atmosphere, a group of rejects takes it upon themselves to save the world below... with outrageous results."

"This one might be a fan-favorite," Legion producer James Tucker told The Continuum. "There was a Substitutes annual that Keith Giffen did that was just off-the-wall and totally different. And that's where the Substitutes were really first presented as really bizarre. We took a lot of cues from that one.

"Itıs a fun episode. Itıs got a lot of cameos in it, from other Legionnaires, not just the Subs. And two Legionnaires join the team."

SPACEDOG, TOP COW TO DEBUT ZERO-G

Spacedog, in association with Top Cow Productions, is set to debut a preview issue for the upcoming mini-series Zero-G at the New York Comic Con on Feb. 23-25.

Spacedog will be appearing at the Top Cow booth during the convention and will have the preview issue for Zero-G. The #0 issue features a 10-page story, interviews with writer/creator Alex Zamm and artist Jason Badower and behind-the-scenes looks at character and creature designs.

The issue will retail for $1.99 or is free with any purchase of Spacedog publications at the show.

Here's how Top Cow describes the book:

"Zero-G #0 begins with an international space race when a mineral-rich asteroid is discovered close to Earth. The U.S. sends astronauts to mine the celestial body, but they're not the only ones after it. As they explore the rock, an elaborate series of tunnels is uncovered... and it's not long before the astronauts realize that they are not alone!"

Zamm is best known as writer/director of films such as Inspector Gadget 2 and My Date With The President's Daughter. Spacedog's Roger Mincheff discovered artist Jason Badower during a trip to Australia in 2004.

The four-issue mini-series launches this fall. Click on the thumbnails below for larger images.
